Expertzone - If you work in retail you get special things from MS (contests, discounted goods) It's also a site were they have early betas like Halo Reach, Gears of War 3 etc.

Expertzone is microsoft's corporate reward program thing. Basically if you work in any area that deals with microsoft products, like gamestop for instance, then you can sign up on the site and take quizzes and other things for rewards. They give out early access to things all the time.

Retail workers who sell Microsoft products can sign up for ExpertZone and do courses on their stuff. In return, we get cheap deals on Microsoft stuff, early demos, and sometimes even free stuff :)
Retail workers ... Expertzone.

That goes together like Thirst and Salt.

Well then this will probably be lonely thread because most of us will have to wait for the 14th.

stealth brag thread.
It's okay, EatChildren will ban him soon since he claimed demo thread making privilege. ;)

Of course, this could be the singleplayer or multiplayer demo portion thread, since EatChildren didn't want one or the other. Forgetting.

I'm confused...BF3 had a ME3 insert in it. Was that a pointless reminder about the demo, or do I actually get the demo early?

For anyone that doesn't want to wait. Go to expertzone.microsoft.com and create an account. When selecting your employer, select walmart and enter a random store's info. Walmart doesn't require the verification process. Take the mass effect quiz on the homepage and then you get a code.

You will be able to play the multiplayer part on February 14th. 3 Days before everyone else can play the multiplayer section. Amazing deal, right?
Aw that's weak. I'm guessing I'll get an email with a code or something, right? Or will I have to launch something from BF3's menus? I believe the insert said something about watching the BF3 ticker for ME3 beta updates

Nah. I think that you have to log in with your EA account to play the demo. And because the EA account knows that you played BF3 on the Xbox 360, it will unlock the multiplayer part.
